Hi Glenda & Millie :)

Getting better, slowly, i was having episodes of a throbbing head 7/10 pain and I went to my osteopath who re-aligned the bones in my head - since i have slept for one solid night 10pm - 7am!) and the throbbing episodes are decreasing WOOHOO!

today i really feel like i'm on the mend - 5 weeks after Acoustic Neuroma surgery & 3 weeks after CSF Leak surgery .. nice feeling

Thanks for all the support, i'm starting to re-write my journey on my blog http://samssnips.blogspot.co.nz/ and its been really healing as well.
